A SUPPLEMENTAL ANNUITY can be paid at:
- Age 60, if the employee has at least 30 years of creditable railroad service.
- Age 65, if the employee has 25-29 years of railroad service.
In addition to the service requirements, a current connection with the railroad industry is required for all supplemental annuities. An employee must also be entitled to receive a railroad retirement age and service or disability annuity before a supplemental annuity can be paid. Eligibility is further limited to employees who had at least one month of creditable rail service before October 1981.
